Store cattle and stirks were less money in Bentham, lots of buyers missing and those that were there had no enthusiasm to buy cattle, even the flying Scotsman was beat yesterday, and for those that know him that doesn't happen very often!!!
It’s getting to that stage in the season that a lot of folk are filled up .

SML membership fee is good value . We get a lot of cattle off SML . I agree there are many chancers but many is the time I go onto a farm to buy something and come away with more than advertised ........and I go when it's convenient for me !
.........and I'm not hanging around waiting for someone to ring a bell to start selling 3quarters of an hr after the sale time is advertised .

p.s. Also sell ,as you say there's is no commission unless you use their banking system ,which I dnot .
Awful lot of ungenuine stuff on there, bulls that wouldnt pass the inspection etc, oddments with faults. Anything half decent or reasonable is usually hours away.

Yes . I'm on it first thing every morning doing a 25 mile radius search and if there is something that catches my eye I send a text . Quite often I don't buy what's advertised but end up with something else .
....went to Newport to look at a some heifers last Wed and ended up with a cracking Hfd Bull as well . .....and made a good contact .
